EducationI am a recent Master's graduate from the University of Texas majoring in Human Movement Science/Biomechanics. My bachelor's degree is in Industrial Engineering with a minor in Biomedical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA. Currently, I am pursuing my second Master's degree in Orthotics/Prosthetics at Northwestern University. I have more than two years of tutoring experience at all levels of education systems ( elementary, middle, high school, college, and etc).
ExperienceI am comfortable tutoring high school math including pre algebra, algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, trigonometry, and in the advance level pre calculus, calculus, and statistics. At the college level, I am able to teach through the calculus level including college algebra, calculus 1, and calculus 2.
However, I'm definitely not limited to math. I enjoy teaching math-related topics, such as physics, as well as non math-related ones including chemistry.
HobbiesTo my opinion, every student has a unique way of learning and I find it rewarding to find that way by engaging the student in the process of learning. My job is to spend as much time as necessary with the student to discover his/her strengths, weaknesses, goals, and help the student overcome challenges in learning science.
If you are looking for a science tutor who is enthusiastic, considerate, and patient, feel free to contact me, and we can design a plan together that works for you.

Samira has really been great with my daughter. She has been accommodating, flexible and always willing to adjsut to our busy schedule. I really love that about her! She really knows her stuff when it comes to chemistry and knowing that she has a very good knowledge base when it comes to Math, this has allowed us to also use her for reviewing Math issues as well. Thanks Samira for all your help!!
Samira is a great tutor! I took a Physics II summer course, it was fast paced. She was able to help me fill in the blanks and help with difficult problems. She was able to work with my schedule and even helpful outside of the tutoring days. I would recommend her to anyone.
Samira was fabulous. My daughter(K)is enrolled in a very rigorous math and science magnet program. Samira spent quite some time assessing K's skill set and determining where she might need assistance. Samira was able to quickly focus on deficiences and strategies to improve them. I would highly recommend Samira and intend to continue to use her as a resource throughout my children's education.
My son had been struggling in his Honors Chemistry class. Fortunately, we found Samira and she has guided him through his classwork and test taking so that he was able to achieve a B for the year. I really don't think it would have been possible without Samira's expert instruction. I observed her working with him for several lessons. She always knew what her next step would be - starting with the basics and building to the more difficult concepts. Thank you Samira!
I started seeing Samira in December 2012 for help with Honors Chemistry. Samira knows Chemistry very well, and organizes the information in a way that made it easy for me to understand. Since I started getting help from Samira, my grades have improved with every test. I would highly recommend her as a tutor, and only wish I had found her earlier.
Samira tutors me for my Georgia Tech Calculus class. She understands the subject so well that she can figure out how to explain the concepts to me in a way the calculus books just can't.
We approached Samira when our 9th grade son started to become overwhelmed with his first quarter of pre AP math. After two sessions with Samira his very next test score went up 28 points. More importantly he now understands and is confident in the curriculum, which is imperitive and evident by his test scores. We continue to use Samira and it has paid dividends. We can't thank Samira enough and highly recommend her tutoring sevices.
Samira has been tutoring our daughter in Honors Chemistry and Accelerated Math III. Jenna was having a rough year, and Samira has truly helped her turn it around. She explains everything so clearly that Jenna goes from having no clue what is going on to complete understanding.
Samira is a really good tutor. my physics teacher was a first year teacher and was new to teaching and we were all struggling with physics. but after a worked with samira i started to understand the concepts and scored higher on tests.
Samira is the tutor we chose after trying a couple of them off of the site. Samira was equally comfortable teaching Accelerated Math 3 and AP Chemistry and her personality was a good match for my daughter. Samira has a great down to earth way of explaining difficult topics.
Samira replied to my email request asap. She explained the math problems very well. She has a lot of patience and I recommend her to anyone.
Helped me bring up my grade from a D to a B!! Samira literally changed my entire outlook on chemistry! I am a pre nursing college student and am not strong in chemistry; in fact I didn't understand it at all. I was to the point of giving up, and decided to get a tutor as a last resort (and thank goodness I did!!) Samira is the kindest, most understanding person; she was so patient with me and explained everything over and over again until I got it. I scored a 67 on the first test (which is the easiest test of the semester) and after working with Samira, my grades went up every test. I scored a 87 on the hardest test of the semester and finished with a B in the course. I could not have don't this without her. I am continuing to work with her in the fall for Organic Chemistry- I dare not take another chemistry course without her by my side!
I struggled with Analytical Chemistry and had to drop the class last semester. I enrolled in same class this Spring and later touched base with Samira after my 2nd test.Samira seemed to explain it in a way that none of my other tutors could. She was always very patient and understanding and would explain it to me over and over until I understood it. She followed up with me before tests and would ask if I had any questions or concerns and always willing to help. My 3rd and 4th tests were at the top of the class.Samira is very prepared and organized and if we didn't come out with the exact answer she wouldn't give up until we did. Her sessions were remarkable and with her persistence and encouragement I passed my class with a high B!! I would highly recommend her! She knows her Chemistry and Math. Awesome tutor!!
Samira worked with our three sons in Algebra 1 & 2 as well as Physics. She had a patient, encouraging and logical approach that was very helpful to all of them. We saw improvements in the their understanding of the material as well as improved grades. One of the boys was even able to help his classmates after a tutoring session. I would definitely hire her again. Stacie V
Samira is an awesome tutor! Algebra 2 was very challenging for me and she was extremely helpful to me in learning a subject I was having trouble in. My grades were so much better as the year progressed and the results were very apparent. I would recommend Samira to anyone looking for some extra help in math.
Samira has helped me understand complex concepts more clearly in calculus. My grade in the AB Calculus improved greatly while working with her. In addition to helping me with my homework, she also helped me prepare for the AP Calculus exam which I did very well on. She was able to work around my busy schedule which was another plus. I highly recommend her
Our 10th grade daughter was struggling in Geometry and Samira began working with her in March of this year. Samira was intuitive about the uniqueness of our daughter's learning style and within a couple weeks began adapting her style of tutoring in specific ways. Samira was prepared before each session and it was clear she put time and effort in behind the scenes to make the most of the tutoring time. She was dedicated, punctual, encouraging, and very responsive to us as parents, communicating quickly and frequently on details. Samira grew passionate about wanting our daughter to pass and she fought to make this happen. We all rejoiced yesterday at the good news that she successfully passed the class! We only wish we had hired her earlier in the school year.
Samira is awesome. My daughter has picked up her grades. It was a good experience we will definitely use her again if needed
Samira has done a wonderful job tutoring my daughter. She is very capable and thorough. My daughter has progressed well, at school, in her Advanced Algebra course as a result of working with Samira.
Samira has been a Godsend to our family! Our senior daughter was having trouble with Pre-Calculus and Physics, hovering around a failing average in both classes. Samira patiently and encouragingly helped her to build one block of understanding upon another until she also began performing wonderfully on her tests. Our daughter has ADHD, and she often has to hear a concept explained four or five different ways before she can finally wrap her head around it. Samira masterfully and creatively accommodates this need, and our daughter currently has "A" aveerages in both classes. IF YOU WANT RESULTS, YOU SHOULD HIRE SAMIRA!!!!!
Samira has helped my daughter with high school AP calculus. She is very thorough and well prepared. Helped my daughter to fill the gaps in calculus and build her self confidence. My daughter has got a 5 in her AP exam. Samira is friendly and cheerful and it helped my daughter relax and be comfortable while working on calculus problems
